The New York Yankees have an update on the much-awaited debut of outfielder Harrison Bader. The former St. Louis player arrived in New York on a deadline-day trade but is yet to see action on the field because of plantar fasciitis.

The Somerset Patriots, the Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, provided an update on the injured outfielder by stating that he will continue his rehab assignment with them for the next couple of games.

The Yankees continue to face criticism for the deal. Jordan Montgomery, who was traded in the opposite direction, thrives as a Cardinal. But Bader continues to remain absent even when New York had the worst summer slump.

Due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot, the Cardinals put him on the injured list at the end of June, and since then, he has not participated in any Major League Baseball games.

Before being placed on the injured list, Bader had a batting average of .256 with the Cardinals, including five home runs and 21 runs batted in.

The Yankees’ fans will be pleased to hear that Bader is progressing well with the Patriots.

They might one day get the opportunity to watch Bader perform in person in the Major League. That time could come soon.

Because Montgomery has been exactly what they needed in their rotation, the trade has worked out better for the Cardinals so far. The Yankees have been sliding down the standings since it was made.

However, Bader brings a tremendous amount of positive energy to the playing field as well as the game itself. It’s just one of the many reasons why fans of the Cardinals organization adore him even today.

If he is in good shape, he has the potential to be a game-changing contributor for the Yankees, as they compete against the Tampa Bay Rays for their first American League East championship since 2019.

Both his speed and his glove are incredible assets to have on the field. The previous season, he won the Gold Glove Award while playing for St. Louis.

The Yankees could certainly benefit from playing that defense.

For the time being, Bader will carry on with his rehabilitation assignment; however, it might not be too much longer before the Yankees get the opportunity to witness their new outfielder in action for the very first time.

When do you expect to see Bader in MLB action? Can his defense be an asset for the Yankees?
